How do you guys decide your jacket length?

Drew's fits always have them ending right around his belt line. A lot of the toj-gallery pics have people in longer jackets though.

 

It's kind of hard to tell with different jean rises too.

Not sure what's more awesome. The jacket or the machete hanging up next to a Dali print?

By measuring correctly, mine hits below the belt. Not sure if the longer jackets are intentional or an oversight. Either way non-cropped motos just look off to me.

Moto high above the pockets.

A2 Bomber length is right at the coin pocket. instead.

 

CWU-45 however is a little higher.

I prefer mine to be a little past my belt, around the pockets of my jeans (roughly anyway).

Step 5) Front length - measure from the collarbone (top of the bone point, if you want to be exact) to where you think the jacket should hit. Preferably well below your navel, about where your pelvis dips down, but not quite all the way to the natural crotch. If you're wearing jeans high and fitted on the butt, the jacket should hit about mid-rise on your jeans. If you wear your jeans slightly sagged, then it should go right below the waistband on your jeans.
(this measurement should be nowhere near as long as an untucked buttonup shirt, and if you wear your tees long, not as long as that either)

The best coverage/balance is usually about a half inch or inch above the bottom pocket rivet of your jeans, but then again, depends on how you wear your jeans. I wear my jeans really low.

If I have to give averages, the front length for guys 5'5-5'6 is about 20" on a rider's jacket, 21" on a Bomber, 5'6-5'7 = 21"/22" respectively, 5'7-5'8 = 22/23", 5'9-5'10 maybe 22.5/23.5, 5'10-6' = 23"/24" and then the curve tends to flatten out a bit more as you go higher. As you can see, the Bombers are better about an inch longer than the Rider's jackets per height, because of the ribbed hem, likewise sleeve length.

It doesn't need to be that formulaic though, it should be more an emotional thing where you can hold that tape out and just imagine that jacket hitting wherever it is you're holding the tape out to. Simple as that.

Thanks, I'm dumb.

Have Canadians heard of "google"? biggrin.gif

In all seriousness TOJ shipping is top notch. Usually shows up a couple days after getting tracking.

Basically it'll come by Canada Post. Requires a signature though, I think.
